I am not sure this is the case anymore with the number of entries capped. NHRA nets less than $2 million annually from sportsman racers National Event entry fees after payouts. This is an organization that brings in almost $100 million a year.

While we spend extra $ with crew, licenses, chassis certs, etc. NHRA has extra staff, track prep and equipment just for us.

NHRA would net more money buy figuring out how to put 1,500 spectators in the stands at each event.

I donít see any 2 day races on the list. I see mostly 3 day races. Unless Iím looking at the incorrect information?!

Think the 2 day Mello Yello events won't have Friday Pro Runs, just Sportsman?

D1 racers arenít the only ones that will suffer. D2 lost a Charlotte race, Atlanta and yes, VMP is D1 but for East Carolina folks itís closer than Charlotte or Atlanta. Itís a big blow for Carolina folks. Weíve traveled a minimum of 5-6 hours (or more) to the 1st 4 events this year (all in our division) Iím just hoping we actually start back in June. The Volkmanís just want to race

As I see it in the email I recieved from NHRA , the 6 races flagged as Mello Yellow classes only, it says they will be condensed to run on Saturday and Sunday only . I take that to mean no sportsman classes at those races. Those races would be Houston,Bristol, Norwalk, Seattle, Topeka, and Reading !! ????

I didnít receive said email. Was simply looking at their website, which shows 3 day events. I have no clue!

You would have to think NHRA thought about this for at least 5 minutes before posting... with that, maple grove is a 2 day PRO race, but looking at the start date it starts on friday. so MY brain tells me that sportsman is friday qualifying. eliminations Saturday and finish Sunday... im 99.9% sure thats how it will be If this works out. just be happy they have a plan from June on.

There is a real simple fix for this. Take one Divisional from each Division and let the points count toward National points and not Divisional Points. Change nothing else. I would think this would be a win win situation for everyone. BP

All of the rescheduled events, except INDY, are listed as 3 Day races.
